70% Complete

Supported by the International Development Research Centre, the Government of Sweden and our core donors, our South Asian Network for Development and Environmental Economics (SANDEE) network has grown to more than 300 research associates and over 300 environmental and development economists, including a rich network of SANDEE alumni (1,500+).

SANDEE utilises its network of regional and international talent to help address research problems in the region. Over the last 20+ years, the network has had a significant impact on research, training, and putting research to use in the region.

Over two decades, SANDEE has built a vibrant network of regional and international researchers working on the economics of natural resource use and environmental change
